  1. Is it Be Extra Stupid Column Day for the slime?

    Stuff tells us authorities are monitoring 100 people for terrorist activity.

    You may ask why because there has been no terrorist activity in NZ except for a teenager with a suicide fantasy but let’s get real.

    100 people?

    That’s their job for christs sake!

    100 out of 4.7 million? They’re only doing a small fraction of the job we pay them to do and yet Stuff are doing the shock/horror thing at 100.

    Stuff also has at least two articles by Canterbury rugby haters telling people the most successful rugby team in New Zealand should change it’s name because … religion or something.

    Stuff follow this by a headline: Who Can Stop Joe Biden?

    Biden is but one of about 749 candidates for the Dems nomination, having only just declared. Is this question just slightly early?

    Stuff again follows this with “ABs’ eligibility rule must go”.

    I haven’t read this one, probably from a rugby hater, who is obviously arguing that the no.1 rated rugby team for the last eight years is doing something wrong and needs to change.

    Over on the whorald I see: Heather du Plessis-Allan: Anzac overreaction is baffling.

    Don’t read it, it’s crap proving nothing other than it’s author is brain-dead.

    The Whorald, notably a Jafa production, also has a column trying to change the South Island’s Crusaders name and further down someone blaming Trump because the government overtaxes petrol.

    The competition to win Extra Stupid Column of the Day is certainly fierce.

    • If there was any form of consistency in the media you would be getting a non stop flow of soul searching opinion pieces wailing on about the over representation of “people of colour” in rugby and league and how poor old whitey needs a diversity quota to help him participate.
      Yes well have not seen any yet but hey lets not let that stop us because we can always write some stuff about how we need more gay and transgender role models in the game because they are marginalised by the “toxic masculinity” of the sports.
      In fact the opinion pieces would probably be written by the NZRU in another fit of self flagellation.

    • There are many contenders for misinformation from our fake news sources today. This is one I read from Stuff:

      Criminalising hate speech: New Zealand considers policing hateful expression by Michelle Duff

      https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/christchurch-shooting/112264302/criminalising-hate-speech-new-zealand-considers-policing-hateful-expression

      It’s a fairly lengthy piece but extremely poorly researched. It starts with current whipping boy Israel Folau and goes downhill from there.

      She regurgitates Fake News of the Huntly Muslim attack from February 2017 (refuted here: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2017/02/huntly-muslim-attack-woman-responsible-makes-cry-for-help.html)

      There’s another that more reads of a “Road Rage” incident rather than racial abuse as the second citation. That doesn’t make the offender “right” just not “Hate”.

      Then comes the guilt by association hit on Stefan Molyeanux and Lauren Southern. Neither are alt-right but Duff seems to come from the school of propaganda where if you repeat a lie often enough it becomes true. Hint for Duff: Molyeanux is an anarcho-capitalist and Southern is a Right Libertarian.

      She then goes on about the UK Hate Crime laws. Here, the lie is by omission. Duff is either lazy, malicious or both. She could actually cite to the reader examples of how well those UK laws are servicing the Poms but this is completely absent. We have seen how those laws operate: where misgendering someone on Twitter can get you gaol time for example.

      Most of the rest of the piece is about the unquestioned need for Hate Speech Laws here in NZ (un-critical of Islamic spokesmen for example). At least David Seymour is staunch in his rejection.

    • I’m starting to have some sympathy with the idea that the Canterbury rugby team should change its name. Something more reflective of its culture and values would seem appropriate. Given that sheep shagging and marrying one’s own sister are common practices the name should encompass these popular Canterbury pastimes.

  2. Saturday, went pretty good at the conference. I am pretty sure from the discussion on free speech that National will oppose any of Little’s moves to restrict free speech by introducing new hate speech laws. I will see for sure when I hear the leader’s speech later this morning. I am feeling more optimistic.

  3. I think the medical profession must be suffering somewhat. Until last year I would see my doctor once a year for a grease and oilchange, then order replacement scripts for my pills & potions every three months. No problems.

    Now it seems that every time I need a replacement script they say “you have to come in and see the doctor – 4 times a year instead of 1. They check my blood pressure and weight, stare at the computer for a few minutes, then write my scripts and wish me a good day.

    I am suspicious that they may have fallen on dark times, so need to call patients in more frequently to keep the wallet topped up – anybody else noticed the same issue, or is it just my practice?

    • Not yet KiWombat. I think it may be just your medical practice? Ask them why you now have to see the doctor for repeat prescriptions. We have a ‘portal’ so I order my repeats on line. I go to the doctor less than ever these days but try to see him once a year for an annual WOF. Sometimes I get told the nurse needs to see me to check blood pressure and weight.

    • Because I have a couple of conditions I get a discounted fee of $21 a visit which means it is pointless just phoning in for a prescription renewal because they charge $15 for that. May as well go in for the full check up and a social chat with my GP who is a really good guy and a good Doctor.

  4. The Herald jumps the Shark once again this weekend,
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12225729

    Creepy Perv Joe repeats the Charlottesville lie, Trump responds with a tweet welcoming him to the race which apparently is evidence that Trump is terrified of Biden, citing “advisers”, whose they don’t say.
    The world wide media is completely fucked, sooner they’re all behind a paywall the better.

  5. Mother superior tells two new nuns that they have to paint their room without getting any paint on their clothes. One nun suggests to the other, “Hey, let’s take all our clothes off, fold them up, and lock the door.” So they do this, and begin painting their room. Soon they hear a knock at the door. They ask, “Who is it?” “Blind man!” The nuns look at each other and one nun says, “He’s blind, so he can’t see. What could it hurt?” They let him in. The blind man walks in and says, “Hey, nice tits. Where do you want me to hang the blinds?”

      • Ooh, a censor on this blog!. I have an idea, let’s all post a joke on here and see who can offend Fairydust the most….

        How are women and tornadoes alike? They both moan like hell when they come, and take the house when they leave.

        • A salesman was traveling between towns & got a flat tyre in the middle of nowhere. Checking the spare, he found that it was flat too. His only option was to flag down a passing motorist & get a ride to the nearest town.

          The first vehicle to stop was an old man in a ute. He yelled out the window to the salesman: “Need a lift?” “Yes, I do”, replied the salesman. “You Labour or a National supporter?”, asked the old man. “A Nat”, replied the salesman. “Get stuffed!”, yelled the old man as he sped off.

          The next to stop rolled down the window & asked the same question, to which the salesman gave the same answer: “National” The driver gave him the finger & drove off.

          The salesman thought it over, and decided that maybe he should change his approach, since there appeared to be few Right Wingers in this area.

          The next car to stop was a red convertible driven by a beautiful blonde. She smiled seductively & asked him if he were Labour or National. “Labour!”, shouted the salesman. “Hop in!”, replied the blonde.

          Driving down the road, he can’t help but stare at the gorgeous woman in the seat next to him. The wind blowing through her hair, perfect breasts & a short skirt that continues to ride higher and higher up her thighs.

          Finally, he yells “STOP THE CAR! STOP THE CAR!” She slams on the brakes & as soon as the car stops, he jumps out. “What’s the matter?”, she asks. “I can’t take it!”, he replies. “I’ve only been a Labour supporter for five minutes & already I want to fuck somebody!”

  6. I defected.
    After much deliberation decided to resurface.
    Woke this morning and listened to ‘Insight’ on red radio. As a white male felt like public enemy number one.
    That’s it .Fightback .Fightback for this once great country as I don’t want to see the snowflakes inherit the hard work done by our forefathers.
    Oh, and Hi to all.

    • Yes, tragic for the families. Returning from the end of school holidays perhaps. State Highway 1 should be a motorway. Sliding into a barrier is preferable to hitting oncoming traffic.
      Too soon to ask JAG what she reckons?!

  7. The PM has a problem. She is desperate to dress up in a suitable costume to show support concerning the San Diego attack. Sadly her wardrobe is now empty.

    Any suggestions can be sent to her publicity team who will not sleep unless they satisfy her insatiable appetite for publicity.
